GTFF Week 9 Action

UO Grads for a Universal 1-Year
Funding Extension

#universal1yr at Oregon

We are planning one more grand action for this year to remind the admin that, though we are remote, we are still strong and organized. The executive board is issuing formal demands from the administration for a universal 1-year extension of funding for graduate employees and students today, Friday, May 22nd.

To support these demands, we are mounting a small in-person socially distanced action on Monday May 25 at 1 pm that will be live-streamed on our Facebook and Instagram. We’ll be posting
the open letter calling for extension of funding that was passed around earlier this term (Did you sign it? There's still time!) where administration can see it. 

This action has been planned to maximize social distancing; please stay home and tune in to our live-stream from wherever you are to join us. If you want to get involved in planning more actions like this, contact organizing@gtff.net

We are asking all of you to simultaneously and individually email the letter as part of a larger digital action to demonstrate that grads are still united in fighting for a better way of life on campus. You can use this email template (feel free to make your own changes/additions) to send the letter’s demands to President Schill (pres@uoregon.edu), Provost Phillips (otp@uoregon.edu), Interim Dean Mondloch (mondloch@uoregon.edu), and Missy Matella (uoelr@uoregon.edu) on Monday at 1pm.

Things you can do right now:

Make sure you’ve signed the letter! Also, share your thoughts about the importance of a universal 1-year funding extension for UO grad students on social media using the hashtags #universal1yr and #HigherEdWorksBecauseWeDo—and tag GTFF.

And remember, send your demands for #universal1yr funding extensions on Monday at 1pm!

Let's end this term with a (responsibly distanced) bang and make it clear that we’re willing to fight for what we need!

In Solidarity Forever,

Ellen G. Kress

President of the Graduate Teaching Fellows Federation
